    Two pubs this week:
    Skinners Cornish Ales: Betty Stoggs . I usually steer away from beers with silly names and that have been trunked halfway across the kingdom. I didn't think I'd like this for the reasons above, and because the pretty barmaid hadn't a clue how to serve beer straight from the cask. However, I found it to be a good old fashioned chestnut brown best bitter,which I could have happily drunk all afternoon.
    Surrey Hills Brewery: Shere Drop. Taken about a mile from its new home at Denbies wine Estate,this was much better than I found it a couple of weeks ago.Golden,with a decent level of hopping. My BOTW.

    Very limited week only one nights drinking this week so not much to chose from. But best of what I had was Ringwood Fortyniner most others were very bland especially most the Olympic specials.

    Highlights this week included Crouch Vale Amarillo, Fyne Ales Avalanche and something from The Kernel (I forget what it was called). BOTW though goes to Hawkshead Windermere Pale - a great session ale from a great brewery.

    Black Jack Aces High is going to be this weeks BOTW tried in The Baum.

    The ex brewer from Marble Rob Hamilton has started up this venture and they're coming up with some very good stuff.

    A lot of it is in the American Pale Ale style, like this one, which weighs in at a hefty 5.5%.

    Kelham Island London Calling is going to be runner up.

    Any of the other Moderators willing to take on the BOTW thread for a while?

    If not I'll set up the threads for the next 3 weeks, but won't be around to maintain them.
